Michael Vick Says “Dynasty,” People Go Crazy

Not that we really give two shits about this guaranteed-to-be-blown-out-of-proportion story on a day in which Paul Holmgren pistol-whipped the Nashville Predators in his quest to obtain Shea Weber and his you can fire it all. over. me. slap shot… but, we must mention it. 

In an interview with Eagles homeboy Derrick Gunn on CSN Philly* as part of his media tour to a promote an upcoming book, Michael Vick uttered the D-word. No, not dog. Not dong. Not Dallas. Dynasty. He said dynasty.

The full quote: [CSN Philly]

"When I look at our football team and what we have on paper, I think about when I was growing up and the great San Francisco 49er teams, the great Green Bay Packer teams, and the great Dallas Cowboy teams, how they just positioned themselves to compete and be one of the best teams out there. I think we have a chance to be that. I think we have a chance to develop a dynasty."

 

Eh. It’s going to be stripped out of context. It’s all local radio stations are talking about today. ESPN is on its nut. I’m sure some dog zealots are taking issue with it, too. 

Don’t get me wrong, it was a silly thing to say. Vick has never won a playoff game with the Eagles. Eli Manning (two-time champ) is in the division. Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees are in the conference. The Eagles, as a franchise, have never won a Super Bowl. Talking about developing a dynasty is, like, step 88 in the process of what the Eagles need to do here.

Eagles beat reporter Tim McManus, speaking to Tony Bruno and Harry Mayes today, put it best– (paraphrasing) The Eagles spent all offseason cultivating this “lunch pale” image of being humble and earning respect. Vick using the "dynasty" word throws that all out the window.

That’s the biggest problem with Vick’s comment. It, again, puts a needless target on the Eagles’ back. Vick should just shut up, stop plugging his phony book, and win some football games. Then we’ll talk about dy one Super Bowl. One.

Watch the video after the jump.

*Anyone else find it odd that Vick is doing satellite interviews with hometown media while he's out talking to folks like Matt Lauer and Piers Morgan? Like, the local folks don't even rate, so they have to get the hometown quarterback via satellite. That's kind of sad… for the local media.

  1. he didnt say they were a dynasty. he said they have a chance to develop a dynasty. i dont see an issue with him being confident.

  2. I have an issue with him being this confident when he hasnt won anything. He needs to focus on winning one game in the post season as an eagle. Hell he needs to focus on getting to PLAY in one postseason game, after missing the playoffs last year. The man has the swagger of a champion, which is great, when you have actually won something. This guy is a freaking joke. Already has distractions from football with this book, then the dog comment(which i dont care about other then the fact that it draws problems that are NOT needed)… and i like the Mcmanus quote too, that about sums it up. And i dont know what Vick is talking about this WE shit, if he makes it thru one more complete season i would be amazed! I just hope that we start grooming a QB of the future cause i can not stand this guy.

  3. Vick has got, and has brought to this team, the kind of swagger that we always longed for when McNabb was here. Now we’ve finally got a guy who oozes confidence and isn’t afraid to say what he thinks. I’ve got no problems with what he said. We want our QB to think like this, not to be puking in the huddle at the end of the big game.

  4. He said it plain and simple “ON PAPER” that is fair to say and people shouldn’t jump at this and blow it out of proportion. He understands that they need to prove it on the field. I hate the media.

  5. don’t ya have to win 1 title before uttering ‘dynasty’ in any way, shape or form?
    shouldn’t you – at minimum – be a playoff team?
    8-8 and talking dynasty – just shows you how clueless this guy is –
    he’s promoting this book like he came back from cancer – or recovered from a horrible accident
    all his trouble was self-inflicted – he was a FUCKING criminal – he engaged in a long-running criminal enterprise – this is NOT like he made one bad decision one night and something horrible happened
    …he was a fucking hoodlum and a very FUCKING CRUEL, abusive man
    poor Mike Vick – read my book I’m a victim…
    I came from a bad neighborhood, I only had a $100 million contract, how could I be expected to be anything but a dirtbag
    F this guy –

  6. Reid sucks you guys could have Brady, Moss, Rice, Emmit smith, Mike Allstott, akers, sapp, polimalue, all in their prime. and still not win the Super bowl with Reid. Get over it the eagles suck.

  7. like totes wtf bro liek cmon vick like for real lets just play some pigskin like totes play then talk totessssssssssssssss

  8. As that old saying goes: Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Regardless of the context, Vick should’ve known better than to say what he did, especially after Vince Young opened his mouth and inserted a Shaq sized foot firmly inside. Here we go again.
